On February 15, 2024, the Compensation Committee (the “Compensation Committee”) of Stran & Company, Inc. (the “Company”) approved annual bonuses for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2023 to each of Andrew Shape, Chief Executive Officer and President; David Browner, Chief Financial Officer; John Audibert, Vice President of Growth and Strategic Initiatives; and Sheila Johnshoy, Chief Operating Officer. Each of the equity bonus awards described below was awarded pursuant to the Stran & Company, Inc. Amended and Restated 2021 Equity Incentive Plan.

 

Annual Bonus Grant to Andrew Shape

 

The Compensation Committee approved the discretionary bonus award of a cash payment of $50,000 to Mr. Shape.

 

Annual Bonus Grant to David Browner

 

In accordance with the terms of the Employment Agreement, dated as of April 14, 2023, between Mr. Browner and the Company (the “Browner Agreement”), the Compensation Committee certified the attainment of performance conditions relating to certain targets for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2023. The Compensation Committee therefore approved the following bonuses for Mr. Browner as required by the Browner Agreement: The award of a cash payment of $26,250, the grant of 5,000 shares of common stock, and the vesting of 7,500 shares of common stock under the stock option granted to Mr. Browner on April 14, 2023 to purchase common stock at an exercise price of $1.72 per share.

 

Annual Bonus Grant to Sheila Johnshoy

 

Under the employment letter agreement, dated March 11, 2022, between Ms. Johnshoy and the Company (the “Johnshoy Agreement”), after the first year of employment, all cash and equity bonus compensation goals and bonus amounts will be reviewed, and all benchmarks and bonus percentages may be adjusted as proper each year based on changing business factors. On February 15, 2024, the Compensation Committee determined that the cash and equity bonus compensation performance conditions under the Johnshoy Agreement for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2023 would be the same cash and equity bonus compensation provided for under the Browner Agreement for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2023. In accordance with the foregoing, the Compensation Committee approved the following bonuses for Ms. Johnshoy: The award of a cash payment of $26,250, the grant of 5,000 shares of common stock, and the grant of a fully vested stock option to purchase 7,500 shares of common stock at an exercise price of $1.55 per share, which was equal to the last reported price of the common stock of the Company on The Nasdaq Stock Market LLC (“Nasdaq”) on the date of grant.

In accordance with the terms of the Amended and Restated Consulting Agreement (the “Audibert Agreement”), dated as of April 14, 2023, among the Company, Mr. Audibert’s wholly-owned company, Josselin Capital Advisors, Inc., and Mr. Audibert, the Compensation Committee certified the attainment of a performance condition relating to a certain target for the fiscal year ended December 31, 2023.

In addition, the Compensation Committee approved the following discretionary bonus awards to Mr. Audibert: The award of a cash payment of $10,000, the grant of 2,661 shares of common stock, and the grant of a fully vested stock option to purchase 7,500 shares of common stock at an exercise price of $1.55 per share, which was equal to the last reported price of the common stock of the Company on Nasdaq on the date of grant.
